Sokleap is a fourth-grade student from Cambodia. He is the youngest of four siblings, and enjoys playing soccer with his friends after his studies. His favorite subject is math, and he hopes to become a doctor when he grows up.
In 2017, Sokleap had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in his left ear to perforate. For this reason, Sokleap experiences hearing loss, discharge, and tinnitus. He cannot hear others clearly and has a difficult time focusing in class.
Sokleap traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 4th, he will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in his left ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $464 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
